Mallika Sherawat was one of those actresses who was judged for her boldness. Mallika stepped into the industry with Murder and did a few bold movies that were too HOT to handle for the Indian audience especially women, she claims. In an interaction with Mashable, Mallika spoke about the ‘radical criticism’ she faced in India from Indian women. Talking about it she said, ” I think my glamour was overwhelming for them. I am unapologetic about it. I wore a bikini in murder and actresses have worn a bikini before me also but I was so nonchalant about it. I was like I have a great body. Do you want me to wear a saree at the beach? No, I will wear a bikini and I celebrated my body because for me that was very liberating. But that was too much to handle for people, especially women. Men have had no problems with me. Men love me in India and I love them back. It’s just some women who are so vicious to me.”
